In The Stepford Wives part of the book, yuppie couple Kyle and Jessie move from their LA apartment to an upscale suburb down the California coast. Kyle convinced Jessie the move would be good for his business and a better place to raise the children they both wanted. Jessie was not quite as enthusiastic, especially when she saw that the wives in their new town were all complacent conformists. Everyone’s life centered around a sinister country club with strange initiation rites. In The Silence of the Lambs part, Jessie was training to be a forensic psychologist and her interviews with a brilliant serial killer led her to unlock her own dark past and confront her suffocating present.
There are so many reasons not to read this book. First, the author’s manuscript was missing words in multiple places, showing a careless disregard for her work product and her readers. Second, she uses dialogue tags to excess, the sure sign of an amateur unable to convey what her characters are feeling or thinking without spelling it out — or of a writer with the ability but too lazy to write better. Third, The Stepford Wives part of her story was unbelievable, unoriginal, and unnecessary, except to extend the length of her book. The Silence of the Lambs part was uninspired and also unoriginal. Jessie and Crutchfield could not hold a candle to Clarice and Hannibal.
And finally, a spoiler alert: Anyone who has ever seen a movie on the Lifetime channel will be able to identify the book’s villain without even finishing the first page.
The characterizations in “The Perfect Wife” are really fascinating. Jessie has issues, as you can imagine. Kyle is charming and financially successful. The twists and surprises in the story are well done. Anyone can be naive sometimes? Can they be intuitive at the same time? Yes. Sociopaths are not so easy to recognize, as the author cleverly demonstrates. One reviewer brought up a good point about rating a book. I believe that if I am engrossed or can hardly put the book down, and if I learn a little along the way, that is a winner of a read. This is such a book. The ending sets up the next book in the series. A very entertaining read!
I really liked this book. It held my interest and I stayed up until 2 a.m. to finish it. It was somewhat predictable, but not as bad as most other books.
Actually, I'm going to pre-order the next book in the series right now.
I recommend it.
